Christmas Tree Farm {Christmas Minis} | Hattiesburg, MS Family Photographer

These sessions are usually always my favorite! We have a local tree Farm (Thomley's Tree Farm) and they are always so welcoming in letting us photographers use it to capture those perfect Christmas card photos each year <3

Ember { 7 days new } | Hattiesburg, MS Newborn Photographer

This session was a very special one.. This was baby #2 I had the pleasure to photograph from this super sweet family AND we did a very special setup to remember baby Ember's cousin Gentry that passed away not long before she was born of cancer :( The dragonfly symbolizes that precious Gentry is watching over! #GentryStrong

Balancing Business and Family

I LOVE the fact that my hobby turned into a thriving business that not only helps provide for my family but also allows me to have a flexible schedule to be able to attend band concerts, cheer competitions, field trips, etc. I get to run a business AND be somewhat of a stay-at-home of both worlds!!

Yes my studio does happen to be part of my home so I do “work from home” but I am a legit licensed business and just like any other legitimate business (restaurants, dentists, doctor's offices, etc), I have set business hours and days off. I also, like everyone else, take holidays off and certain times during the year for a family vacation. With that said, I would LOVE to just explain a few things that sometimes are misunderstood or maybe people just don't realize. 

I have to set certain business hours and days when I am available for sessions (or meeting clients) so I am able to balance work and time with my family equally. Photography is my passion and because I am self-employed and do have more flexibility, I also have to remain strict with my work schedule (STUDIO: Monday-Friday 10:00am ONLY...not available on weekends. OUTDOOR: Monday-Friday and limited weekend days close to sunset. National holidays and SOME school holidays I will be unavailable for sessions) so I am able to fit in those important family times that are needed. I try and be as flexible with my clients as much as my schedule allows me to. 

So, I am not trying to be difficult if I can't work around an 8-5 job schedule as much as you would like, I am simply trying to accommodate everyone possible while also tending to my first and most important thing in life.. FAMILY. 

I appreciate every one of my clients and I couldn't do it without you! I really enjoy being able to capture your most treasured moments and being able to watch your precious children grow.

All my love,
Jennifer Carney
